I did the tutorial using just a solid colored cardstock in hopes it would show up easier but on my final card I used different paper. Here is what it looks like finished:
Gift Card Holder - Card Tutorial
Cut cardstock or double sided paper 5” x 12”; then score at 4”, 6” and 8” (ignore that second score line on mine – I made a mistake when doing my 4” in score line)
Fold card as shown – valley, mountain, valley (that’s how the folds should go)
Turn the card over on the back side and add adhesive to the fold around the edges as shown. You want to make sure you don’t add adhesive the middle section because that is insert for the gift card.
Now you need to make an opening for the gift card to slide into the middle section. I used a punch from Stampin’ Up and punched it a couple of times to make it wide enough. You can experiment with different styles of punches to get this opening or you can just cut an opening with scissors too.
Now the opening for the gift card is done.
Here is my finished card again.
